Shafaq News/ The exchange rates of the US dollar fell against the Iraqi dinar, on Wednesday, in the main stock exchange in the capital, Baghdad, and in the Kurdistan Region, while the exchange owner attributed this to the large supply in exchange for weak demand.

The dollar price this morning recorded 148,150 Iraqi dinars, compared to 100 dollars.

The owner of Al-Maysara Exchange Company, Muhammad Al-Moussawi, said in an interview with Shafak News Agency, “The decline in dollar prices is due to the large supply that exists in the local markets in return for the lack of demand.”

Al-Moussawi added that “the bank’s sales rose during this period to reach more than 280 million dollars after it did not exceed 200 million dollars, which created a great offer in the markets with the wholesale market activity declining significantly in Shorja and the Jamila Industrial Area.”

Al-Moussawi denied that “the resignation of the Minister of Finance has affected the decline in dollar prices,” stressing that “the decline is related to supply and demand in the markets.”
